Mitch Albom

At the start of this year I was trying to escape a rough patch. During this time I would find myself constantly shopping. The reason for this is not clear. As while I was going through this patch, the last thing I really wanted was to be around people. Which doesn’t make sense as shops are obviously always full of people. Unless of course I broke in at night…which is something I would never consider doing as I’d probably end up in jail, with no get out jail free card. [slight tangent…]

Anyway one of the shops I’d mostly find myself in (other than clothes shops) was book shops. Maybe this was so I could escape the noise of other shops for a while, and give myself a little break. Anyhow as I was looking on one of the “best books of the week” tables. I noticed the title ‘The First Five People You Meet In Heaven’ by Mitch Albom. Now for me personally I’ve never been religious. I was never christened or baptised, nor never attended church unless it was compulsory by my primary school. However I have always been open to the idea of a place we go to when we die, not necessarily heaven or hell but a place.

This has to be one of the best books I think I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. It was so inspiring and uplifting. If anything it gave me guidance without meaning to. Since then I have been hooked on his books. I feel that each of Mitch Albom’s books teaches me something new. A new life lesson to support my own life journey. I personally think everyone could find something within Mitch Albom’s books. So therefore I recommend them to everyone. Everyone and anyone who stumbles across this post. Mitch Albom is a wise and inspirational writer and I think everyone could do with a bit of Mitch in their life.

“Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher, or a colleague. Someone older, patient and wise, who understood you when you were young and searching, helped you see the world as a more profound place, gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it.” – Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie.

Quotes…

Another thing you should know about me is simply that … I love quotes.

I’m not too sure when my love of quotes first began, or even why I like them so much. It’s not even a specific type of quote, just a mixture of inspirational, hopeful and even deep eye-opening ones. If you looked closely to my previous blogs you’d notice I sign off with a quote I feel suits the blog. So far I’ve only used quotes for Mitch Albom books as I find him one of the most inspiring writers I have come across so far and I love reading his books!

Since I began blogging … or maybe just while I’m growing up, I tend to find more and more quotes in my daily life. I’m not really sure whether it makes me seem wise or a bit nerdy but either way they lift me up day-to-day, and I hope to inspire others through the quotes that have given me inspiration. I’m sure I’m not the only one that loves quotes as there are millions of pages on the internet dedicated to all different types of quotes, so maybe people who choose to click on this blog will feel the same…who knows.
